I need to get rid of this ugly tattoo!

Recommended Posts

I got this tattoo when I was 15 years old and I hate it! It was done very poorly and it is so f'n generic! I want to cover it up/ add onto it and get it retouched so bad but I'm having a hard time coming up with ideas. I'd rather not walk into a shop having no clue what I want to do so I thought I'd get some opinions. I don't want something really huge but I wouldn't mind going slightly larger.

I would like a more unique design that will make my tattoo look less ghetto.

any ideas are appreciated

Thanks!!

Copy and paste the link (I know it's a lot of work but please :) )

That is something that's easily covered. Which in turn opens up a large amount of options that understandably makes it difficult to make a decision. It would be best to talk to your artist in person so that He/She can help read whats right for you and narrow down the options at the same time. Roses, Peacock feathers, and motion off a larger designs are my personal favorite to use covering up things like that. hope this helps.

Welcome to LST. Take a look in the gallery section of this site and in the design section of the forums because there are a lot of great tattoos and ideas there and hopefully something there will inspire you. Let us know how it goes.

Instead of trying to think of a design or an idea first, try either checking out some shops or some tattooers whose work you might like. I know not everyone wants to pore over portfolios, especially for a small tattoo that may be your first, but it can definitely point you in the right direction and get you thinking. Like @CultExciter said, let us know where you're at and maybe we can get you started.

I agree. You might get the best results by meeting with the tattooer of your choice and working with them to design something you will love. The artist might have some great ideas you wouldn't have though of on your own.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
